what to do/best plants-April

Daffodils illustrate that Spring is definitely here and trees also start to bloom. Expect the April showers, but on sunny days do get out into the garden.

1 Start hoeing weeds as they appear, but make sure they are weeds and not young perennial growth
2 Tie in new growth of climbers such as clematis and honeysuckle
3 Sow new lawns or repair patches with fresh new grass seed
4 Remove winter grime from yourpatios using a pressure wash, but be careful not to wash out the grouting between the pavers
5 Remember to book your tickets for the RHS shows, such as Chelsea, Hampton Court, Malvern or Tatton Park.

And here are 5 plants looking great in April:
1 Aubretia – to cascade over walls
2 Peris ‘Flaming Silver’ and
4 Photinias will have their fabulous new red shoots
